Zen Michalski Quickly Positioning Himself As Top Backup, Likely Future Starter at Offensive Tackle for Ohio State

Zen Michalski sees his window of opportunity to become a starting offensive tackle at Ohio State in the not-too-distant future.

Barring any unexpected setbacks, Paris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones will be Ohio State’s starting offensive tackles this year. However, Michalski is in position to be one of their top backups, as he’s been repping as the second-team left tackle in preseason camp. And since Johnson and Jones will both have NFL decisions to make after this season, a good year on the second team could put Michalski in position to be one of their successors next year.
